Moving down the alphabet in my theme of Recipes from A to Z, we have a simple potato dish that satisfies the craving for French Fries in a much more wholesome, and easier way-- without the frying!
And by the way, if you want to check more blogs on the Amazing A to Z Challenge, the complete list is at http://tossingitout.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html
When the baking potatoes have sprouted, dried out a little and developed spots, they are no longer suitable for baking. That’s when this recipe comes in handy. Waste not want not!
3 large baking potatoes or sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Wash and peel baking potatoes. Cut into halves, then fourths, then eighths. Cut out any brown spots or discoloring. Lay out on cookie sheet. Sprinkle olive oil over all, then paprika, salt and pepper.
Place in 400 degree oven and bake for thirty minutes. Pull out and turn each piece. Return to oven and bake an additional fifteen minutes. Serves four.
The ones pictured were made using russet potatoes and sweet potatoes.
